Reflective learning with ePortfolios

April 23, 2009 - Kelly Anderson and Martin Lucas (Film & Media), Elaine Gale (Special Education)

An ePortfolio is a web-based collection of work that can be used to demonstrate student learning and achievement.  ePortfolios can be used for a variety of purposes – to maintain a record of student work over time, to provide a space for students to reflect on their own learning, and to showcase exemplary student work.  

In this session, faculty members from two departments discussed how their students are using ePortfolios this semester.  Elaine Gale (Special Education) is using the wiki tool in Blackboard to allow students to create ePortfolios containing work tied to specific learning outcomes.  Kelly Anderson and Martin Lucas (Film and Media) have created HTML templates that students use to post examples of their work in an introductory Film and Media course.
